Product Description

The Jackson Soloist SLX has a basswood body, through-body maple neck and Duncan Designed alnico HB102N (neck) and high-output ceramic HB102B (bridge) humbucking pickups. Its bound compound-radius rosewood fingerboard curves more dramatically at the nut for easy chording and flattens out as it approaches the neck joint for low-action bends without fretting out. Other features include a Floyd Rose(R) Special double-locking two-point tremolo, 24 jumbo frets and three-way pickup switching.

Jackson X Series guitars are loaded with purebred Jackson DNA-neck-through-body construction, hot humbucking pickups, bound compound-radius fingerboards with their distinctive shark-fin inlays, and stunning finishes. This guitar is imbued with the X factor, fantastic tone, ultra-fast playability, and unbelievable value for 21st century guitarists.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (5 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "This guitar plays better than it looks."
Sound: This is a great sounding guitar. Pick ups are SUPER hot. In the bridge position you get the classic metal sound for pinch squeals and the such showcasing the very trebly side of things, move to the middle position and you get a slight more mellow sound but still very clean and articulate using both the pickups, and the bridge position is great for rhythm guitar. Feature: Great pickups for the money. I have owned other guitars with the EMG HZ system and was not impressed, but they sound great on this guitar. Ease of Use: The SLXQ has a nice thin neck but the finish, I think, hinders the speed of movement. The finish looks NOTHING like it does online when you buy the Cherry Sunburst. No amount of light gives it that great look. Out of the box, this guitar took some tuning and that was it. Most of my guitars went to a luthier for setup, but not this time. Overall: Great sounding guitar, well built, and finished. Not the color of burnt cherry sunburst you see online though, not even close. Out of the box I only had to tune and install the whammy bar, thats it! My last Jackson, I had to have a full set up done for a horrible rattle on the G and get the rest dialed in. Had the Kawasabi Green been available I would have grabbed that for sure or sent this back for it. Other than the color, I am very satisfied with my purchase from not only Jackson but zZsounds. My 10th purchase from them and every time it has been very smooth.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "This guitar surpassed my expectations!"
Overall: The Jackson SLX Soloist Electric Guitar came promptly, as usual when it pertains to zZounds, which is one of the many reasons I get most of my gear from them; I took it out of its box, ithought it looked beautiful! and started to play it immediately and couldn't believe how well made it is, what great action it has and how sweet it sounded. You want to know what else I loved? I bought it at a very affordable price and thanks to zZounds I could do it in installments, which made this one of my best purchases in a long time! Love my Jackson and love zZounds!

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
